Desk Top Teaching Explained!

Dear Juniors,

If you missed class on Thursday, January 5th, we completed the following:

1. A new assignment entitled "Desk Top Teaching" was explained and demonstrated. This is a vocabulary teaching strategy. Each student found a vocabulary word from Act 3 taped to their desk. If you missed class, please visit with me, so I can give you a word and SHOW YOU how this assignment works.
2 . We continued with The Crucible by obtaining the themes for the section of ACT 3 that we read last week.

3. We then read from page 110-121. We had a great time acting out the climax. Well done to those who were involved with the performances.

1. Remember that your Desk Top Teaching Assignment is due on Friday, January 13th! PLEASE let me know if you need help. YOU MUST COME PREPARED to teach your particular word to the class.
2. Please locate an article involving "cognitive dissonance." How does this psychological disorder relate to The Crucible?
